      Every time they do one of these New Warriors series that original run just becomes a little less classic.

    I would have said the opposite. Now that I finished those 45 issues I bought, I know how good that run really was. In my opinion, every time Marvel publishes tripe and calls it New Warriors, the original run shines brighter, begging to be enjoyed by anyone who wants to read New Warriors the way it should be written and illustrated.

    If anyone only knows the New Warriors by the later runs, treat yourselves to the original. That original run was Marvel's answer to the Wolfman/Perez Teen Titans, and I can only hope you appreciate how high such praise is.

Can't agree. So much has been done to ruin these characters I grew up with.

1. Vance joins the Avengers and becomes a total fanboy dork. Never mind that he served jail time for murdering his dad and was a leader of the New Warriors. His personality was reset to New Warriors #1.
2. Night Thrasher and Namorita are killed.
3. Speedball becomes an emo goth cutter who is despised for his role in Nuke destroying Stamford. His own parents disown him which really bugged me. Madelyn and Justin love Robbie and aren't the awful parents they're presented as.
4. The horrible mini where the team become reality TV stars
5. Hindsight Lad turns traitor and reveals the identities of the other members....never mind the fact that he first came into contact with the team because of a villain getting a hold of the same information and using it to kill and kidnap members of the New Warriors families.
6. Nova is replaced with this new brat I can't stand.
7. Firestar has got cancer and earlier breaks up with Vance and then Vance promptly sleeps with Ultra Girl never mind that he was waiting for marriage with Angel.

Just ruined the whole lot of them. The only one who really got off light post volume 1 was Silhouette even though she left the team for skanky reasons to begin with.
